#Now – what I’m up to
Thursday Laurence Vagner and I spoke at our first “online meetup”, UX in Lux virtually went to Zurich. It was a great event, we had about 48 people at some point. We spoke about cognitive biases and presented our deck of 52 UX cognitive biases cards.
UX Job Title and Description Red Flags: another great podcast by Delta CX with
Mitchell Wakefield as guest. I like the name “UX theater”: putting post its on the walls, drawing and “thinking like a user” but never talking to them. This resonates on so many levels with me. I feel like I and a lot of people I talk to were in that situation sometimes where clients, stakeholders really just want to have the nice UX deliverable to say “look we are user driven” but will not act on anything that was discovered. Even worse when all of those deliverables are produced without any user data of any kind.
I think this episode really stroke a nerve with me, I spent the whole time nodding with my head.
